Join a club!
Make the most out of university
Whatever year it is for you at university, it’s always beneficial and fun to get involved at the school. What better way than joining a club?
There are currently 44 clubs at Mount Royal University, all from different disciplines that can cater to anything you may be interested in. Club Days was held on Main Street Sept. 24 and 25, but don’t worry if you missed it, because you can still join anytime. Clubs are always looking for new members and you can easily find contact information for all of them on the SAMRU website, www.samru.ca.
“You find people of like mind and you find your community, it’s part of what makes school awesome” says Amber Mader the clubs coordinator at SAMRU.
There are a variety of clubs from dance, art, and recreation, but if there is something that you are interested in that isn’t already offered then why not create a club yourself?
Starting a club sounds difficult but it’s actually quite simple. If you talk to Mader she will take you through the steps; getting 10 members for the club and creating a constitution. It sounds a lot harder than it actually is, but if there is something that you are interested in — there’s a pretty good chance that someone else at school is interested in it too. Starting a club teaches responsibility, by helping you get organized and helping you meet other people with the same interests.
Meeting people at university can be difficult, programs are usually big, and most of your classes will have different people in each one. Joining a club at school can help you meet new friends with the same interests as you — which will help you make the most out of your university experience. School is more than just about going to classes and getting a degree it’s about making friends and enjoying learning.
